Microsoft PL2 ARC Touch Mouse RVF-00052 Black Touch Scroll BlueTrack Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: When it works it’s really nice. It is comfortable; the scroll pad works well, when it works. Looks nice too.

Cons: I rated one star because a mouse works, or it doesn’t. This one is erratic. Works for an hour or so then the mouse pointer get a mind of its own and flies all over the place. The scroll pad becomes unresponsive. The fix is to “snap” it closed than “snap” it back on. Good for another thirty minutes to an hour. I use it with a laptop with Windows 8.1 (not an upgrade) so I don’t think the OS is the problem. No other mouse apps or drivers were installed, so that shouldn’t be the problem. I bought this because my three year old wireless Logitech fell of the counter and died. Its battery life was great as well. I question “snapping” the mouse closed to save battery life. Seems like a mechanical place to fail just to save batteries. Since I needed a mouse now, I looked for a best buy. I will return it.

Other Thoughts: Maybe just a strange quirk. I have a blue mouse pad, and it doesn’t like it at all. Maybe the blue light, I don’t know. Could be just a coincidence. Also my Logitech worked without a pad on any surface except clear glass. This one seems to have a problem on any very smooth surface. But again, may that just goes with something being bad with it. I don’t generally give problem components a second chance.

Microsoft PL2 ARC Touch Mouse RVF-00052 Black Touch Scroll BlueTrack Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: received as a gift. Works right out of the box as expected. No drivers or software needed. Seems very accurate. Feather weight. Broke my older Logitech (which I liked just fine) by bouncing it off the kitchen floor. It was three years old and still worked fine, until the sudden stop...

Cons: Cool, but just a bit pricey.

Other Thoughts: Does take a few minutes to adjust from the feel of the classic mouse. That's it. A few minutes. I can't complain at all.

AMD A10-6700 Richland 3.7GHz Socket FM2 65W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon HD AD6700OKHLBOX
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great chip - excellent video 12/02/2013

This review is from: AMD A10-6700 Richland 3.7GHz Socket FM2 65W Desktop Processor AMD Radeon HD AD6700OKHLBOX

Pros: It’s a great CPU/GPU because it does exactly what AMD says it will do. It runs very cool with low power consumption. The higher price is justified in a 65 watt chip. Great performance at a reasonable price. What more could you ask for? Someone below mentioned their i7. Sure, the least expensive i7 is $290, then go buy a video card too because nobody likes Intel video. I really like Intel as well, just not the premium price.

Cons: None that come to mind.

Other Thoughts: I always read the negative reviews first. I really don’t get many of them. If you are savvy enough to build a PC or read reviews you already know the heat sink from (take your pick here) the manufacturer is junk. I bought a Noctua NH-L12 cooler which is a bit over the top. But with a 65 watt CPU you can dial down the fan speed and it’s silent. I also see complaints about BIOS incompatibility, or memory speed problems, which are the motherboards fault not the CPU. Do better research first. It always seems how many people giving bad reviews consistently get bad parts, one after the other. I’ve been building PC since the mid 1980’s. I have never had a defective CPU, motherboard, video card, or hard disk. Two bad power supplies. Not bad for nearly thirty years.
